Seattle....

So Portland got some sun, which was ever-so-lovely ...

Morning that the sun came out - I worked with a photographer who was a total nutcase. Par-a-noid! He was obviously very uncomfortable with me being in his house. Kept peering out his window and unlocking and re-locking the doors - over and over. Not in a creepy way, but in an Obsessive compulsive disorder way. He would take three photos, rush over to his window, and fidget with the corner of his drapes, "The neighbors know what I am doing - I know they know. They can see in the windows." I was on super high alarm level (closest to the door, all my stuff packed up, ready to leave if needed) but really enjoying the early-morning-entertainment - About twenty minutes into the shoot - he headed into his garage, emerged with a toppling armload of cardboard boxes with which he began stacking carefully in front of the windows. Just stacking them.... six foot towers of empty boxes. After he finished his project of blocking off the windows - he thrust $300 into my hand and announced he just could not shoot anymore, "Perhaps it is time for you to leave... NO no no! Do not go out the front door, no... the garage!! You need to leave through the garage!!... Jesus! My neighbors!"

Oh it was quite the entertainment - really and truly.

Spent the evening with a photographer and his family. Went to a local pub and I got to order a grilled cheese and ham sandwich - forgot how delicious those things are. I could even probably cook that sometime.... well, you know... if I had a kitchen.

Do any of your remember the ridiculous custom that I got for the Vampire Shoe Salesman? Ha, I know Dave in NY will - because we laughed so hard trying to film that stupid thing...

For those of you who do not know what I am talking about..... A year ago, a guy contacted me and asked me to film a custom video for him (which I rarely do). It was a five page script about a Vampire who poses as a shoe-sales man, drugs his victims, and then bites their feet. As he bites their feet - his victims have long drawn out orgasms, and eventually they die, he steals their toe rings.... Seemed like it would be fun to shoot... a friend of mine and I got together to try to film it - but we could just not stop laughing.... it was just too ridiculous trying to do that in a serious manner....

Anyways, a week or two ago a model-friend contacts me and asks me if I would be up to doing this custom - it is about a vampire who is a shoe sales man who bites feet.... : ) So I finally shot it - shot it with Wednesday Harrington and Marvel Girl....

Was shooting with LostBets the other day, and I had to answer the door naked for a pizza guy.... which reminded me of the time that I got dared to put on a friend's strap-on 10-inch dong and answer the door naked.... god that was funny, that little Mexican lady's eye almost popped right out of her skull.... oh good times....

I am now in Seattle - lots of work this week, staying with Fedora for a few days... really excited! Cruisin on the 21st.... Photos are compliments of Mr. Mike Long out of Portland.

Hmmm...sounds like it's time to sign up for a Taekwondo class. You just NEVER know...Oh God I wish I was a fly on the wall when you pulled that stunt with the strap-on. Reminds me of the time I dressed up like a crack junkie with an upside down cross painted on my head, a tattered, stained shirt that read "I Love Piss" and six-inch stiletto heels (didn't even trip once)that showed off my fabolous hairy legs while I blackened a couple of my teeth for good effect. I'm pretty sure I traumatized a few people that night...particularly that guy who nearly ran his motorcycle into the car in front of him because he couldn't take his eyes off me. I love that you have that same twisted sense of humor I do. Enjoy Seattle, that's one of my favorite places to visit. The vibe is just so different out there. Have Fun and don't forget the anti-creep repellent!

You are right,wack job. Sounds like you hit it on the head: Excessive Compulsive, with a touch of something to hide. Not a good mix. Remember when you said you are trying to break the habit of hitting some guy when they hit on you? Put that on hold for awhile. Were you a Vampire in a previous life? Sounds like you had fun with it. I gotta say it, hell of a tip for the Pizza Guy. Mr. Mike did a nice job. Great shots. Have fun in Seattle.

I love flattering British photographers... : ) Ooooh Mike, wait until you see the stuff I did with Compass Rose the day after you - seriously, he brought a barn door into his fancy studio and threw hay everywhere... it was fucking crazy stuff.... you twn rock the scene...

Ha - as for having a twisted sense of humor, I don't think I am too far gone - but I definitely think that dongs are hilarious.... just the word itself - complete genius.

That guy never hit on me, he was just all sweaty and freaking out - : ) If he had tried anything, I was all ready to kick some ass - had it all planned out in my head... grab the lamp, smash into skull, kick him a lot, lots of blood.. now that I am writing it, it sounds more gruesome than I planned out... ha.

WOW!! You look absolutely breathtaking in that military outfit. Hope you're having a kickass (and safe) time out there. You inspire those of us stuck in our factory processed and cubicle infested lives to go out and live like there's no tomorrow. I'm sure even while fracturing some douchebag's skull in, you'll still look gorgeous--bloody hands and all lol! Keep up the great work!
